This is something that I am curious about. I am pretty sure about most people's answers though.
Why do politicians get armed security? People like the President are protected around the clock obviously, but what about other government officials who frequently have armed security? Congressmen, judges, and all of that? When they speak to the public they get protection? These questions are important to ask of those officials who want more gun control. Officials who would ask to be protected by men who carry guns that most of us would need a license to purchase right now (automatic weapons).
This does not make sense to me. Our most basic right of self defense is asked to be taken away by people who higher armed guards? Is that not hypocrisy? People like Michael Moore and Rosie O'Donnel have armed security, and yet they do not see the irony in denying individual citizens, who cannot afford to hire armed security, the ability to purchase a firearm for self defense? Just another reason to hate politicians and hollywood idiots who think it is ok to deny us important rights that allow us to protect ourselves.
